I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a B.A. in Liberal Studies and a multiple subject teaching credential. I have taught for 4 years and have 16 years of substitute teaching experience. I am new to Olive Drive Elementary, but I feel that I have been a part of the Norris family since my daughter started kindergarten in 2006. Both of my daughters have spent their elementary and middle school years in Norris and now they are both in high school. Time really does fly! My family and I love the country life and spend a lot of our time working with and taking care of our many animals. We spend a lot of time at steer shows with my daughters' FFA, and love to help out whenever we can. We also enjoy watching my daughter play volleyball for Frontier High School. It brings back memories of many years of playing volleyball through high school and college. I am so excited to be here at Olive Drive Elementary and seeing what each student can accomplish throughout the year!
